I loved my new dishwasher until I realized the very small anyware basket was the only silverware basket. I thought it was just missing additional baskets untl the Whirlpool representative informed me that it only comes with the one. They advertise 14 place settings fit but they are only talking plates as there is no way for 14 knives, forks & spoons to fit in that little basket & actually get clean. I'm using the basket from my old machine which doesn't match but it fits everything. The dishwasher looks great, runs quite and cleans great if you don't try to jam all your silverware into that one little basket. I would have rated it higher if Whirlpool supplied another basket.

There are just two of us so we wash dishes every other day. It is very quiet. Doesn't clean as well as the 14 year old Whirlpool we replaced (and we rinse dishes well before putting in the dishwasher, but I left just a little residue to test its cleaning). The silverware basket gets attached to the door. If you leave it attached, it is hard to put the silverware in the left side because the soap dispenser is in the way. After the cycle, the dishes were wet. Checked the troubleshooting guide; said it needs rinse agent. I had put rinse agent in the day before, but after one wash and half a bottle of rinse agent the dispenser was empty. Now I put just enough rinse agent to fill the dispenser opening (but you don't see it in space where you should see how much is left). That seems to work if you get the dishes out shortly after machine shuts off. If you wait overnight to open the door, there is so much condensation that the dishes are wet and you can feel the moisture. After leaving the door open for several hours, there is still condensation. Never had any of these issues with the old builder's model. Haven't complained to the store, because the problem when purchasing was finding a dishwasher that would fit in a 34.5" height opening.

Very Quiet, Stylish looking dishwasher with lots of space inside!
from Austin, TX, United States
Comments about Whirlpool Gold Series White Built-In Dishwasher:
We were pleasantly surprised by how quiet this dishwasher is...I had to touch it a few times to confirm that it was running! Very sleek/stylish looking and spacious. Still learning about its features so yet to discover the best cycles for our needs but plenty of options.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

looks great with other stainless appliances
from Wisconsin, United States
Performance is great. Dishes are always clean, very quiet. Disappointed in the silverware basket. Too flimsy compared to previous whirlpool dishwasher, difficult to keep the stainless exterior clean also.
from Kissimmee, FL, United States
This dishwasher is everything I need it to be. It's big enough for the dishes of a 6 person household, it's quiet, it's clean, and it's pretty!
Wonderful Dishwasher - So quiet
from Inman, SC, United States
I went without a dishwasher for several years just due to NO money. I recently purchased the Whirlpool Dishwasher and my wife and I are so happy with it. It is SO quiet that sometimes you just can't tell if it is on. It washes and dries the silverware and dishes so completely. We are very very happy with this purchase. If you have to pick someone to win the Frig, please make it me. My current is very bad and I need to replace soon.

Cleans dishes well and very quiet. I don't like the silverware and utilities holder.
Great Features, Quiet Operation, Great Look
from SC, United States
We bought this dishwasher a few months ago and love it. The silverware rack in the door leaves extra room in the bottom rack for more dishes. The top rack only wash feature is great when we need to do a small load of necessities. The unit operates really quietly which is so nice since we spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Its sleek look is also a plus. It is easy to wipe down and to operate. With a toddler running around it is great having the controls concealed on the top edge of the door.
Nice looking machine inside and out.
from Tampa, FL, United States
About a month ago my "Meatball" brand, contractor grade dishwasher finally failed past the point of repair. Being confronted with the need to find a replacement, my choice of the Whirlpool brand was an easy one. With GE selling to Electrolux, Whirlpool is the only USA based major manufacturer remaining. Supporting US manufacturing is important to me. Additionally, Whirlpool, as a company, is focused on providing home appliances and that focus shows in their commitment to the quality and design of their products. This machine looks great and simply does its job. It is quiet and efficient. Loading the racks is easy and the space is easy to utilize. My family uses a lot of plastic bowls and containers so the upper rack only wash feature has been a big plus for us. The only thing that I would add is a "cycle complete" indicator that would be visible without having to open the door. It would help to communicate to my kids that it has been run and needs to be emptied! I'm a "do it yourself" guy and installation was a breeze. I do wish that the brass 90 to connect the water line to the valve had been included. The lack of this fitting was frustrating. First I cobbed something together at a hardware store before finding the fitting at an appliance store for 25% of the first option. Bought the washer on line and it would have been nice if the purchase of this fitting had been recommended. All in all we are very satisfied with our Whirlpool dishwasher. Works great and we found it at a good price. I would recommend this machine to anyone looking for a new one.
Lots of room!
from New Jersey, United States
I bought this a couple of months ago and I am mostly pleased. The one feature that was a selling point for my husband was the fact that the utensil rack could be placed on the door; this frees up space for more plates and pots. However, it's difficult to load when the door is flat. Also, you can move it to on the outside of the lower rack, but it doesn't fasten well and falls off easily when loading and unloading utensils. Other than this, it's pretty great. I can fit so many more items and can do so more easily. It has many cleaning options that can also lead to more efficient washing.

I purchased this dishwasher 2 months ago and I love the way it cleans and dries the dishes. My favorite feature of the dishwasher is the quiet. I can't imagine any dishwasher is quieter than this one.
